Chelsea defender, Antonio Rudiger has come out to say that Chelsea’s summer transfer activities has shown that current players need to step up.
Rudiger recently revealed that he is very pleased to see new faces in the team.
According to him, it is nice to witness real reinforcements after the recent ban and the names that have been coming in will definitely improve the club.
He added that there will be a big challenge for spots in the first team next season and everyone will have to step up.
His words, “I am always happy to see new faces in the team,”
“After the transfer ban last summer, we were of course hoping to get some real reinforcements. With Hakim, I immediately had a good feeling and my relation to and opinion about Timo is already known.”
“With such names, the club is also sending a clear message to the existing personnel that they want to take another step forward in the overall development. I think that is great!”
“That will certainly be a big challenge,”
“We don’t want to set something like this as our direct target. We simply want to be even better than last season, in any case to get closer to the best teams in Europe.”
“We have already shown that we can keep up with the very best in single matches. What is missing is consistency throughout the season, but that is somehow normal for our relatively young squad.”
“What Liverpool and Manchester City have shown over the past few years, you have to take your hat off to them,”
“That has my greatest respect – but I don’t expect these two teams to dominate everything for the next few years.”
“Manchester United could move closer in the long term with consistent performances like after the corona break, and we shouldn’t forget Tottenham. Then there’s also us, who want to close the gap step by step.”
